You treat 'em right... know how to love 'em, read some of the FAQ's, all you'll come to love them too.

They are not indestrucable... know their limits, and what to expect... they'll treat ya alright. Welcome aboard... your in the right place for folks who love and care about the 6.5

I heard the same things and before I bought mine I talked to 3 people who actually owned them instead of what people say goes wrong with them, and one was just shy of 300K miles on it and has had no major problems another over 200K with no major problems, and then the 3rd had 42K on it and would sometimes stall(probably PMD), but other than that loved the truck.

I pick'd up my abused and neglected truck from a Ford dealer. It's been a few bucks to get it back in line, but it is running great now. If you understand the issues, and limitations, they are a good motor.

The biggest thing I've noticed, myself and on the forum, is not understanding a problem properly. This can cost big bucks and leave a very bad taste for the 6.5 (or any engine).

#1 advice, understand the problem before buying parts.

Enjoy, there is alway help at the DieselPlace.

I've had a few problems with mine but overall it runs great. Doesn't give me the mileage I was hopeing for but it still much better than 6 cyl f-150 I had.

Every vehicle is noted for something. Make sure you get one that has been well maintained & with the info & help on this site you should be fine.

Would be a good idea to make your own thread. This one is 7 years old and doesn't really pertain to your question.

Also go to the top of the screen to USER CP and edit your Signature and include all info about your truck including mods if any.

And Welcome.

EDIT: looks like you made your own thread, but still fill out your signature.
